The size and the growth of the global market for EMI/RFI shielding products is a function of several factors. Shielding closely follows the demand for electronic devices and components. It is also a valuable resource to assist manufacturers in complying with ever-changing safety and performance regulations and standards. This study summarizes the somewhat muddled global regulatory environment.

This report identifies the nature of the EMI/RFI problem, noting the ways that the redesigning of shielding and electronics can overcome these problems. Technologies and materials specific to EMI/RFI shielding are also identified and analyzed for their impact on plastics and other materials within a context of trends in components and devices used in the electronics medical, automotive and consumer products industries.

This report also discusses the current state of the electronics and other related industries, the market for plastics-based shielding options, key participants, shielding technologies, patents, materials, shielding components, global developments, and examples of global regulatory standards and environmental issues confronting the electronic shielding business.

Compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) are provided for the period 2018 through 2023 in millions of dollars and millions of square feet. An analysis based on volume is not feasible because of the many disparate shielding products.

The Report Includes:

  • 32 data tables and 52 additional tables
  • An overview of the global market for materials and technologies of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio-frequency interference (RFI)
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2017 and 2018, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2023
  • Coverage of issues surrounding the ever-increasing frequencies being encountered along with the proliferation of wireless devices that may result in the shifting of shielding options
  • Assessment of the impact of other technologies, such as Bluetooth, absorptive EMI, and fiber optics
  • Discussion of trends in components and devices used in electronics and other industries, such as medical, automotive, and consumer products
  • Examination of the current state of the electronics and other industries, the market for plastics-based shielding options, key participants, shielding technologies, patents, materials, shielding components, and a timeline of global developments
  • Company profiles of major players in the market, including Elastomeric Specialties Inc., Magnetic Shield Corp., Orion Industries Inc., Presscut Industries Inc., Stockwell Elastomerics Inc. and Zippertubing Co. Inc.
